Dr Joanna Dunkley and WMAP team to Receive 2012 Gruber Cosmology Prize
Congratulations to Dr Joanna Dunkley and the WMAP team who will share the 2012 Gruber Cosmology Prize for Pinning Down the Universe.
The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) team, led by Charles L. Bennett, have been awarded the prize for their observations and analyses of ancient light, which have provided the unprecedentedly rigorous measurements of the age, content, geometry, and origin of the universe that now comprise the Standard Cosmological Model.
Dr Joanna Dunkley is Senior Research Fellow in Astrophysics at Exeter College.
